when brown can stick around...

"Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."

Perhaps my favorite quote of the inauguration by Joseph E. Lowery during the benediction. You can go here for an audio clip. Cute.

I've been perusing various photos online of the inauguration, and some of the best I've found come from The Boston Globe. Pictures like these make me wish I were a photographer.

Here are a few of my faves (click on them to make them super big):

















We sure have a handsome administration.
